Heather Lake Trail

Its a rough trail, allot of rocks, slippery and muddy. Several places you are taking big steps up, and a few climbs over trees fallen on the trail. Not as maintained as others. Was chilly most of the way, definitely layer up. Road up is 1/4 paved, rest of the way to trailhead is rough and potholes will get you, take it slow and watch your way. Hiked in late February, but am sure that it normally is not a winter trail.

Big Four Ice Caves Trail

Headed up this afternoon, was an easy hike. The trail is really well taken care of, slight graded inclines, but nothing too hard. There are benches towards the end to sit and enjoy the view. Ice caves were beautiful, even though they are far less than normal due to the less than wintery winter. Still worth the drive and short hike.

Mt. Forgotten Meadows

The trail was snow free until about the last mile. Very light snow up to the overlook and then deeper snow in the meadows. Snowshoes weren't needed but micro-spikes would make it easier on the way down. Views from the meadows were amazing. Big peaks in every direction including Glacier Peak. I almost turned around at the overlook not knowing where the meadows were. Luckily I found some tracks in the snow that lead through the woods and after another 10 minutes made it to the meadows where the views just got better.

Lots of moss covered rocks along the trail which was kind of interesting. You can't see much of the Perry Creek falls or the creek for that matter but do have some views of the valley.

Mount Pilchuck Trail

Great hike. Clear skies. I was walking on snow almost 1.5 miles into the hike. Going up was good with just my boots, but I had microspikes at the ready just in case. With a warm winter, this is still a busy trail. I got there to a full parking lot.

The descent was a little harder if didn't have any sort of traction cleats. Every one wearing tennis shoes were having a lot of trouble on the descent. If you plan on doing this hike while there's still snow on the mountain, buy yourself an inexpensive set of traction cleats. those will still work better than your tennis shoes alone.

This would be a 5 star trail if it wasn't so crowded. Can't imagine what the summer will be like.

We went today with 4 kids ages 5-12 and 2 dogs and had a great time, the trail is closed at 1.2 miles due to rock slides along the river, a lot of people went past this point but we didn't because of the risk with kids and dogs. Everyone was able to complete the hike beautiful scenery, wish we could have made it further!!

We hiked up Mt Pilchuck today. What a beautiful day for it. It started to get Icy about half way up. A lot of people in tennis shoes. Not good for a snow/ice hike. People were slipping and sliding all over.
